How to Brew AeroPress

The AeroPress was invented by Alan Adler, an American inventor and physicist, in 2005. It was designed to brew a single serving of coffee using air pressure and gentle immersion. The AeroPress quickly gained popularity among coffee enthusiasts for its simplicity, portability, and the ability to produce a smooth and rich cup of coffee.

What you'll need:

AeroPress & filter papers
16g coffee (medium-coarse grind)
250ml boiled water, tablespoon
scales, timer and mug 

Step 1

Add 16g (2 heaped tablespoons) of ground coffee
in to your AeroPress and cover with 250ml of boiling water.

Step 2

Start your timer and stir briefly with a spoon
to make sure the coffee grounds are fully saturated.

Step 3

Add filter paper to cap,
rinse with water and screw on to the AeroPress.

Step 4

At 1:45 carefully flip the AeroPress onto a mug
and at 2 minutes begin to plunge.
The plunge should take around 30 seconds -
keep pressing until you hear a hissing sound.

Step 5

At around 2:20-2:30 your coffee is ready to enjoy!


If your coffee takes longer than 30 seconds to plunge,
make your grind setting coarser. If your your coffee takes shorter
 than 30 seconds to plunge, make your grind setting finer.
